The Kaien Trails TrailBlazer Run is a race through Prince Rupert's developing trail network. The 10 kilometer race will start at the bridge over the Seal Cove lagoon and take runners along the waterfront on the newly reconstructed Rushbrook Trail, up the length of Hays Creek on the more rugged McClymont Park Trail before returning to Rushbrook by way of Rotary Waterfront Park, and Cow Bay.
A variety of race lengths and age categories are available for registration, all of which feature Kaien Trail's showpiece Rushbrook Trail as well as the society's next intended project: the upgrade of the McClymont Park Trail. This event is a must for anyone who enjoys running through Prince Rupert's breathtaking nature. Following the races, awards will be presented for the whole variety of competition categories at the post-race ceremony hosted at the nearby Seal Cove Pub.
Online registration for the event will be open until 5pm on Friday, September 9th. In-person registration will be accepted up until 9:30am on race day, with a $10 surcharge.
Discounted entrance fees for Youth (18 or under) and Seniors (55+) are only $15! The Youth and Senior discount is applied automatically at checkout.

This race provides participants with a little bit of everything Prince Rupert has to offer! Beginning in Seal Cove, runners pass over the Seal Cove Lagoon trestle bridge and then run the length of the newly redeveloped Rushbrook Trail, enjoying its stunning waterfront views. The race then takes runners through the dense forest of Hays Creek along the more rugged McClymont Park Trail before emerging at the Prince Rupert Civic Centre. From there, participants will follow McBride Street to arrive at the Rotary Waterfront Park. Circling the historic Kwinitsa Railway Station, runners will then return to Seal Cove through historic Cow Bay, George Hills Way, and then another pass through Rushbrook Trail.
